KABC was hired by Balzac Coffee (Balzac Caffé) renamed to redesign the chain after the company merged with World Coffee in 2011. Services included formulating a brand strategy and subsequently a brand experience comprised of graphic services, signage, architectural design, and interior design. The brand strategy is based on the original brand values of the founder of Balzac coffee as well as current coffee shop trends observed in New York City. The second part of KABC’s services was to translate the developed brand into a series of distinct and memorable experiences for guests.

This Balzac Coffee Shop was the first shop realized for the brand. It is located in Main-Taunus Center, a brand new shopping development outside Frankfurt, Germany.

The Balzac Coffee brand and subsequent interior design have been developed from the types of products the stores will sell. Coffee will always be sold, while extra offerings like Panini, frozen yogurt, and specialty shakes will change based on what is popular at that particular time. Similarly, classical furniture which evokes a timeless quality will be built into the store, while whimsical accent pieces juxtapose the minimalist sensibility.

The shop near Frankfurt features the signature Balzac Caffé wooden frame on the outside. Upon entering, shop patrons are greeted with a 9 meter long, wooden counter that defines the narrow linear space.

It is shaped and intended to be more like a bar counter as opposed to the typical service counter, and will act as a social zone for people to enjoy coffee and additional items each Balzac store will offer.

This minimal environment is made cozy through playful and artisanal accent elements that will be changed more often, including the menu boards, graphical styles, and seating upholstery.

Tourkovounia as a Green – Wind Landscape in Athens, Greece by Andreas Demertzis, Ioannis Katsanos, Thanasis Farangas

Tuesday, October 9th, 2012

Article source: Andreas Demertzis, Ioannis Katsanos, Thanasis Farangas

The reason for selecting and analyzing this concept was the examination of the area of Athens. The city is characterized by the growth and development of new buildings. Even if those new structures improved the every day life of the residents, the overall effect on the character of the city suffered.
We selected this particular concept because we noticed the negative impact of those urban structures on the landscape of Athens and that the city is “eating away” the landscape. Our intention is to create the opposite effect: for the landscape to merge with the city.

Cairo National Library in Egypt by Seeding Office

Tuesday, October 9th, 2012

Article source: Seeding Office

Traditionally, Egypt was known as the gift of the Nile, ever since Herodotus simply stated that “without the Nile, there is no Egypt, because where the Nile overflows its banks, the land is green, and where the water’s influence stops, the desert begins. Egypt is the Gift of the Nile, the only place in the world where a river dares to cut across a thousand miles of desert to reach the sea, creating a civilization along its course”.

We have chosen Water as a symbolic guide for the whole project, aiming to evoke the deepest roots of Egyptian culture and imagine the building itself as an element generated by the river’s life.

Spartan in Austin, Texas by LVMinc

Thursday, October 4th, 2012

Article source: LVMinc

After years of working in film in NYC, Currie Person decided to take a leap of faith and return to her hometown of Austin, Texas and open a housewares boutique. She called upon LVMinc to help make her vision come to life.

Over a long weekend in Austin, Larah sketched and designed the concept for Spartan. For a long and narrow space, storage and display were the main requirements and guests needed to feel free to browse around and not feel confined within the space. Larah solved this by introducing a full length wall of tiered cantilevered shelves with an integrated lip to avoid items from falling and below, a suspended millwork piece for additional back up storage.

Visitor Centre in Australia by Jonathan Gibb – Architect

Saturday, September 29th, 2012

Article source: Jonathan Gibb – Architect

The split form is at once an ode to the landforms of the genus loci (rock out-crops) and the cultural interweave of local cultures. The building is distinctly two forms, the same yet mirrored & reversed to give a individuality & yet allowing each to speak – open faced to one another in constant dialogue. This dialogue is continued to the landscape by the form of the building, mimicking the shafts of rock and forming of stairs.
